Baytekin Fezada Carpinsanlar (Flash Gordon's Battle In Space)


Published 1967


Baytekin Fezada Carpinsanlar is a Turkish sci-fi film from 1967. This is a very amusing and low-budget movie that's sure to please fans of cult, psychotronic or old Turkish films. This is a grand space opera whose laser beams are accomplished by scratching on the film with a pin, whose monsters are realized by covering extras in burlap sacks, where the illusion of two people talking to each other via view screen is pulled off by having the two parties stand on either side of a view screen shaped hole in the wall, and whose space-age sets appear to be a series of tiny storage rooms dressed with construction paper and fabric remnants. The hero sports what looks like outer space manboobs- I have no idea why. The space ships rival those in Plan 9 from Outer Space. It was directed by Sinasi Ozonuk, and stars Hasan Demirtag, Sevgi Can and Guner Celme. Happily, this film is in better condition than most old Turkish movies. It's in unsubtitled Turkish, but don't worry about that. Watch this if you're in the mood for something fun and crazy.

Subject: Captions?
Is there a way to enable captions? I would love to know what they are saying as this looks like a great B movie....

... oddly takes place mostly, I think on a planet. Sit back, light up the hooka, grab some cold beers and watch the worst-worst movie, become the best-worst movie... from his bra with nipples, to the great costumes, like we made as kids to the sexy? women, and so on. Yes, by the end I was both enjoying the movie and high as a kite, but I did...

That has GOT to be the most intrusive bug I've ever seen. Which country's MTV showed this? And the video transfer is really messed up.

Mind-bendingly awful! Outrageously funny! One of a kind - I hope!
